Now we are abandoning the men we transferred to safe countries....

Those of you who have been following this blog over the years understand that I have many complaints regarding the Obama's administration and Guantanamo (other issues too but that is beside the point...). Even though the administration was terribly slow at transferring the men who could not go back to their native countries those men were, for the most part, settled in countries where they could live a semblance of a normal life. It seems that all of that is out the window now too- In the past few weeks I started to hear from other attorneys that their clients were suddenely unaccounted for. Now this story has appeared in the New York Times. By way of background you need to understand that deals were reached to convince these countries to take the men who could not go home. It seems that the Trump administration is not abiding by those deals...and so, these men that we wrongly detained for years are now in harms way once again.
